Did you add all those fish with in a week? What light are you running? If it's only been running a week then your no where near ready to add coral as it's probably still cycling. I've always wait at least three months to add coral

If your tank has only been set up for a week, has it gone through its cycle yet? What are the water parameters?

Not to sure about the cycle,I'm guessing yes because everything in the tank is doing great and really not sure what water parameters are,but I can say my water temp is right and so is my salt level.Shoot having a heard time with this app.But the last guy said wait 3 months before I put in coral so I'll wait,thanks for responding because I've been having a hard time getting advice

Your going to need to test your water, or you will kill the coral you add to it.

A liqui test kit is a must for the salty side of this hobby. Water quality is a up most importance. Also your stock light won't support any coral an I would look on upgrading it

I use the Chinese black boxes or the Tao tatronics (that's not even close to the correct spelling sorry) but really it mattes on what coral you want to keep really as sps need more light the Lps and fleshy corals
